QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I recently was having flu-like vomiting for about 3 days. My mother suggested I take a home pregnancy test and it came out pregnant! I was so excited I though it was too good to be true so I took two more. They all came out with the pregnant results and my husband and I couldn't be happier.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I was diagnosed with high blood pressure at age 23, cause unknown.

I'm now 28 and want to know is it safe for me to become pregnant. I'm worried about pre-eclampsia etc.

I've had two normal full term pregnancies before this was diagnosed and had no trouble with blood pressure then. I am taking lercanidipine 10mg & perindopril 8mg daily

Thank you
